Firstly thanks to all the competitors for a great weekends racing, and providing a friendly atmosphere for the whole event. Nice to finally put faces to some familiar names.

Thanks to Scott for stepping into the Race Directors role and for Amy on the AMB. Having dedicated people in those jobs made for a smooth running event.

A great big thanks also to Duane Barber: sly dog dodges the limelight but the whole venue organisation - track layout, painting, organising of corner mats etc, etc, has been a team effort for Duane & myself. And Duane's welding skills were certainly needed for the "Robs Rail" - otherwise known as the "Russian Border" :wink: . Not to mention his "Number 8 wire" steel-bending technique (wish I had a video of that). Definitely not out of the official engineers manual.

Thanks also to Sonny for all his work leading up to, & during, the event - organising the entries etc.

Cheers everyone (y) (y) (y)
